Gutfeld: This is what happens when America votes 'present'

July 22, 2014 / Written By Greg Gutfeld / Fox News

As wreckage gets moved, belongings get rifled and bodies get tossed into trains, victims' families must wonder if there's anything is left: a grandmother's ring, a husband's wedding band, a child's bracelet?

The world has always been bad, but as its best policeman embraces life in mall security, the globe is now more worm and less apple. - Greg Gutfeld

Meanwhile, the separatists may be in possession of the black boxes, which is like trusting Charlie Sheen with your drugs.

And so, the world waits for us as we wait for President Obama.

Without America in charge, the world is a headless bird squawking in a field of ghastly realities: downed planes, kidnapped girls, ISIS attacks. The world has always been bad, but as its best policeman embraces life in mall security, the globe is now more worm and less apple.

Do you think Putin minds when that shining city on a hill kills the lights and announces they're in for the night? We vote "present" because anything tougher might incite a response. "It's not our fight," we say about all fights, which is why there are more fights.

But the globe won't move unless we move it. If the world were a classroom, America is not that back-row stoner riding a hazy case of senioritis. He is the star QB, straight-A class president that gets others involved by going first.

But if you'd rather steer clear, you better get used to the suffering, because technology will grab every gory, horrifying detail. Hang back if you like, but the vacuum left behind will be filled with screams no iPod can mask.
